Do not give stress to your knee for some time. Take mahanaryan oil and give gentle massage then give steam to it carefully, by this you get relief.

Hi doctor. I have a back pain from 10 month. What should I do?

Orthopedist,
Hi doctor. I have a back pain from 10 month. What should I do?
Hi Thanks for your query and welcome to Lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from Fortis hospital, New Delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - To maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - If pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - Physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - Adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - Ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - Analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - Avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc We will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena Consultant Orthopaedics Fortis Hospital, New Delhi

Ankle injuries rarely result in nerve injury as ligaments or bones are broken in it. Get a nerve conduction test to look for the exact nerve damaged and also the amount of damage.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Dear user, you have postural back pain. Correct your posture first. Sit/stand straight. When you sit on chair, place pillow on back. If your bed mattress is soft, change it. It should be hard. Do spinal extensors strengthening exercises. Never get up straight. Always get up with side lying position. You can also take heat therapy and pain relieving gel. Do it for 5 days and revert me.

Three bones meet to form knee joint: thigh bone,shin bone and kneecap. Your kneecap sits in front of the joint to provide some protection. These Bones are connected to other bones by Four ligaments which act like strong ropes to hold the bones together and keep your knee stable.
Any injury to these ligaments lead to-

I am 64 yrs having sugar, bp and cholesterol, taking medications. Please of late having problem while walking causing imbalance. Please ct scan of brain done - no probs - report says - please age related cerebral and celebellar atrophy. Done some physio, but no improvement, your valued opinion solicited.

MPT, BPT
Physiotherapist, Chennai
Dear , if you' re having imbalance problems then you should do specific balance exercises. Start with simple exercises like in sitting: touch your nose with your finger tip, touch a point in front of you (this can be done by placing a sticker on a wall) making sure you touch the center of the point, walking in a straight line, walking around obstacles. Initially these exercises may prove to be challenging but as you go along it gets easier. Start with one exercise at a time and everyday do the next exercise along with the previous day' s exercise. It takes 3 months for the improvement to be of significant level. If you require anymore clarifications please feel free to contact me. Preethi mathew (mpt, maiap) neuro-physiotherapist

Hi I am having pain in my right leg after cycling. Used an ointment but no relief from that What to do.
Its due to over straining. Do some stretching . Relax for sometime. The pain will go in a day's time. If the pain is unbearable accompanied by redness and swelling over the painful area then u must consult a doctor.
